I went over to Mrs. June's house this afternoon. One thing led to another, and soon I was on top of Rusty's back.
I did do some Natural Horsemanship before I got on, however.
|Asking for a Canter|
|Love this picture!|
After I rode Rusty my mom, Brooke (my younger sister) and the camera went to Mrs. Cara's house. Mrs. Cara plays polo, and one day when she was playing, another horse kicked her leg. She cannot ride for three months or more, and she has one horse who is a young OTTB and needs consistent riding to stay fit. She called me and I readily agreed to ride her TB, who is fondly named Mimosa, or "Mo".
|First, I watched her daughter Kate ride.|
I walked, trotted and cantered Mo. It was my first time in seven years being in an English saddle. It was very nice and comfortable. So much fun!
I am going to ride Mo at least three times a week for a month or more. I cannot wait for it to all begin!
